Local Power

When improving the construction of the Autonomous State in Spain, countless administrative

decentralisation problems arise that need to be addressed. Committed to furthering

European integration, our Academy has decided to study these problems, from a Spanish

perspective, within what has been called the «second decentralisation», and from the different

administrative, institutional and political approaches to the concept of local power.

In the «Local Power» project, an interdisciplinary study on the future of local power in

Spain, qualified professionals from different disciplines reflect on this. The study examines

from different perspectives our democratic local governments’ general concern about

the relationship between citizens and local governmental institutions, political representatives

and civil servants. This relationship is mainly determined by the scope and depth of

the possibilities of direct citizen participation in the general political process in their closest

environments.

This Project entails four monographic studies on the future of Local Power: the City and

Local Power, Management and financial models of local public services, The role of direct

democracy and federalism in local power and The political dialect of local power organisation

from a legal perspective, which will be completed during the second quarter of 2006.

From then on, the Academy will focus in the 2006-2007 period on the organisation of a

series of debates to discuss and enrich the initial conclusions. With all of this, the

Academy will subsequently publish a concept note for distribution to the representatives

of local institutions and other interested individuals and/or institutions.
